Andrea Bonacker (Training Manager): I was born and brought up in scenic Bavaria where I initially trained and worked as a registered nurse.
In 1999 I wanted a change so I came to the UK to complete an HND in Countryside Recreation Management.
Since then I have enjoyed working in various outdoor sectors, with landbased industries and as a freelance basket maker & tutor.
I enjoy all sorts of outdoor play including fell running, cycle touring, climbing and the odd spot of green woodwork.
Having travelled across the UK over the years I'm now based in Lancashire.
In 2011 I set up First Aid Training plus and when not away training I share my home office with my trusted assistant Dylan.
Janette Hopkins is a qualified nurse, health visitor and teacher and the principal paediatric first aid trainer at First Aid Training plus.
